Thanks for the welcome Randall, I've read some of your posts, and I think we have a lot in common. I'm just getting acquainted with A.N., it is a complex site, at least at first. I have some contributions but I first have to understand the conventions.

I recall when I was about 15, that was in 1952, walking home at night along a lonely stretch of railroad track and looking up at the dark, star filled sky and wondering about the who, why and what of God. Even at that young age I did not believe everything that I was taught, especially things that did not make sense to me. WWII was still fresh in current memory, and Christianity and Judaism were topics of conversation and concern, and the role and activity of a supernatural creator God was the drumbeat of church and Sunday school What made the most sense to me on that night was that the God and religion that I knew at that time seemed most likely to be the invention of humanity rather than a supernatural creation of God. Nothing that the pastor said or that was taught in Sunday school contradicted my thoughts, I had no supernatural visitation by holy spirits or angels and what I learned in science classes over the years cemented my early opinion that religion was of human origin. Although marine biology is my field, religion and humanity has always been a topic of great interest and concern to me. Soon I think I'll be comfortable enough to enter a forum post,

Thanks, your probably right but I'm just glad to know that there are a lot more of us out there than I expected.

Thanks Randall. I'll certainly join in some discussions. It'll be nice to have some rational discourse, living as I do in one of the ever fewer European countries still steeped in religious thinking.

Thank You Randall, Just looking for some similar conversation that has logic + reason as its base.

Hi there, neighbor! Yeah, my upbringing was rich in dogma most of my life. Having known Ken Ham personally for many, many years, and being the religious zealot I was raised to be, being a non-theist has proven to be quite difficult. So thank you so much for your kindness and support. It means so much to me.

Randall, from time to time I welcome people to Nexus, although not reliably.  I see you are doing that.  Thank you.  It makes the site more welcoming and I hope more people will join in the conversations.

I haven't tried growing soybeans sprouts. I'm glad to meet you, a fellow Hoosier. I live in SW Indiana. I'm X - Catholic, now non theist. I reside with my cat in my apartment but in the process of trying to buy a house in Hoosier National Forest.

Hi Randdall.  Thnk for the comment.

Tacoma is a town in WA state in Puget sound.  Not far from me.  It was the Indian name for Mount Ranier.  Seattle airport is there (Sea-Tac).  Means something like "giver of waters".  Supposedly.  Rivers to Seattle are Ranier glacial snowmelt.

I holding my own.  Appointment with surgeon for evaluation Mon.  Tues is appointment for biopsy.  They have to put me out for that.  If they are fast - big if - I could wind up in surgery next week.  Wild guess, 1 or 2 weeks.

Thanks for asking.  For a long time I've been trying to balance living in the moment, with preparing for a future tomorrow with something to look forward to and not regret, and learning from the past.  This is the same.  There have been a couple of "why bother" moments but not much.  Yesterday was an intense high-pressure work day.  Today Im a bit dizzy and tired.
